    Hello Stats Experts:

    I have conducted a "Principal Components Analysis" (PCA) in SPSS. I'm not 100% with the (my) interpretation of the output.

    Attached PDF provides an fundamental overview and includes SPSS table snapshots including comments and questions for each of the six (6) steps.

    Would anyone be willing to review my comments and -- if required -- correct my statements about the outputs?

    More importantly though I also included specific questions for steps 5, 6A, 6B, and 6C. Could anyone please assist me w/ determining the answer and providing assistance how to "summarize" the overall findings (BLUF or Bottom Line Up Front)?

    Thousand thanks in advance,
    Tim
